Texans Standing Tall
Texans Standing Tall (TST) is the statewide coalition making alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs irrelevant in the lives of youth by creating healthier and safer communities. TST is a non-partisan, nonprofit organization based in Austin that utilizes evidence-based community prevention strategies to create a healthier environment for our youth. We are committed to research-driven practices, policies and procedures for prevention. TST pursues its mission through research, public education, coalition training, technical assistance, policy development/enforcement/evaluation, and advocacy. We mobilize grassroots and grasstops for community change. Our supporters and partners include state agencies and organizations as well as individuals and local coalitions from throughout the state. Our premier projects are Regional Policy Forums held statewide; production of an annual Report Card featuring Youth Substance Abuse Issues, Research and Legislation; and our Statewide Summit held annually in Austin.
